What great is that there are only 2 URFA right now.
With the cap space the Jets will have after Sanchez and Holmes are gone (which should be - but not definite), then at OLB I would like to either 1. sign a guy like Orakpo, who would flourish here (if Pace can get 10 sacks with this D-line, Orakpo will explode) or 2. re-sign Pace if it's too expensive. I don't expect Pace to have another 10 sacks, but he's better than the nothing that would be there - unless there's someone else? Spencer?
